Importing a Standard Process

You can import a process from the Processes page.

You can only import a process by selecting the output (in XML format) of a previous export process operation.

To import a process

  1. On the Navigation Tree, click Automator and select Standard Processes.

  2. On the displayed page, select the Import Processes tab.

  3. In the Location field select the location type from the drop-down list.

NOTE: If the required server is not on the list, refer to Locations Management topic to add a new location.

  1. Click the Add Files... button and choose the file(s) to import in the Open dialog box. You can select several files at once. Alternatively, you can drag your files to the Drop files here area.

  2. Enable the Include process dependencies check box to import projects and project models connected with the processes (if any) to Server Library. If a project/model is unavailable in the file system, you can opt to upload the new one instead.

  3. Click Save to save the process. A message box will inform you that the import operation is complete and the Processes page will be displayed.


You cannot specify a location for processes exported with defined locations.

If you exceed the number of processes allowed by your license, the following message appears: "The maximum number of processes per your license (XX) will be exceeded with this import and it cannot be completed. You can select at most (NN) processes for import, or you may delete unused processes or contact your Altair sales representative for extended options."

Named Path Mapping

During import of an exported Standard Process that includes named paths, the Named Path Mapping window displays. In this window, the named paths in the Standard Process being imported are mapped to the existing named paths in the destination environment. The following options are available:

  • Auto Map Named Path button – Click to automatically map all imported named paths by ID or by Name (depending on the radio button selected). By default, the imported named paths are mapped by Name.

  • Edit Mapping button – Click to manually perform mapping or modify existing mapping.

  • Delete Mapping button – Click to delete currently selected mapping.

  • Delete All Mappings button – Click to delete all listed mappings.
